java.dyn is dead, long live to ... (What?)

When the JSRnbsp;292 was started, it was clear that the users of this new API was dynamic(ally typed) languages so the package was naturally named java.dyn But it#039;s is clear now that Java (the language) is also a potential user of this API, by example, the actual plan to implement Java lambda uses several features introduced by JSRnbsp;292 (see section 3 of JSR 335). So, the name ava.dyn is less accurate. It#039;s time to rename this package before freezing the API. Brian Goetz and Mark Reinhold propose to rename it to java.lang.mh, mh stands for MethodHandle which is a central class in the design of the API. I#039;m not a big fan of that name, I mean it#039;s Ok but I find it too reductive. In the same time, I was not able to find a better name :) So this is a community call, what is you favorite package name for JSRnbsp;292 API knowing that it has to be a subpackage of java and that short names (two/three letters) are better ? There is no garantee that your favorite name will be chosen but I will be a strong suppporter of the name chosen by the majority. So Java community please help us to find a good name, I wait your comments. Reacute;mi
